This winter review includes thoughts and ratings on Ano Natsu de Matteru, Another, Bakuman 2, Black Rock Shooter, Brave 10, Chihayafuru, Danshi Koukousek no Nichijou, Inu x Boku SS, Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing, Mirai Nikki, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, Persona 4 The Animation, Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle, Rinne no Lagrange, Senki Zesshou Symphogear, and Zero no Tsukaima F. Spoilers are included for many of them, so tread carefully.
I’m going to push these two out quickly so I can place together my next three spring shows into one post of awesome sauce. That’s how spectacular the schedule for Thursday really is. The following two anime, Natsuiro Kiseki and Phi Brain 2 aren’t bad per se, but when compared to many of the shows airing this season as well, the odds aren’t so much in their favor of staying on my already busy viewing schedule. Regardless, I’ll stick it through for a few more episodes each to really decide whether or not I want to keep them.
The fall season has certainly started off with some stellar graphics and animation, with the following five setting some great examples. I was also caught a bit off guard by their airing since I was focused on wrapping up my summer season final thoughts (still in progress as I’m waiting on some final episodes). I’m pretty positive that at least four of the five described here are on my watching list, with only one of them still undecided.
